Recollections card stock
Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder

  1. Color the digi stamp (for this project, the image was colored using the Photoshop program).
  2. Create a  border for the digital stamp.  I used the Silhouette Cameo to design and cut out this border.
  3. Emboss the border with the embossing folder of your choice.  I chose the Polka Dots folder from Cuttlebug.
  4. Print and cut the image using a cutting machine (for this project, the Silhouette Cameo was used). 
  5. Create a sentiment for the card.  For this card, I also used the Silhouette Cameo to design and weld the letters together to create the sentimanet.
  6. Attach the ribbon to the top of the digital stamp.
